Now that's a quote from "Fields of Dreams" and it has often been applied to blogging. I encountered one person in a certain forum who is very new to this whole blogging phenomenon. He asked a question as to why is his blog still not getting many traffic (I'm not sure what is his standard of the word 'many') considering that his blog is already 3 months' old.
Three months, do you guys think that is already a good enough time to expect much from a blog? In my opinion it's not enough. And I don't know the details of this fellow's blogging habits but I'm sure that the reason why he is not satisfied is because he set quite a high standard on his blog. His goal might be too hard to reach. Perhaps he's already expecting thousands of regular visitors. But at 3 months, I'd really say dream on.
There is so much work to be done with a blog especially if you expect to earn from it. Number one would be posting valuable content on a regular basis. Valuable content because what good is a blog if all that can be read on it are pure trash? And posting on a regular basis is important because if you fail to update your blog, you will lose your visitors.
That's just my two cents on this blogging topic.
